<p> "The Italians serve the spaghetti or macaroni at the beginning of the meal, in place of soup, and they give it the name of... Minestra Asciutta or "dry" soup." </p> <br/> <br/> <p> One of the beneficial results of the Great War has been the teaching of thrift to the American housewife. For patriotic reasons and for reasons of economy, more attention has been bestowed upon the preparing and cooking of food that is to be at once palatable, nourishing and economical. </p> <br/> <br/> <p> In the Italian cuisine we find in the highest degree these three qualities. That it is palatable, all those who have partaken of food in an Italian trattoria or at the home of an Italian family can testify, that it is healthy the splendid manhood and womanhood of Italy is a proof more than sufficient. And who could deny, knowing the thriftiness of the Italian race, that it is economical? </p> <br/> <br/> <p> It has therefore been thought that a book of PRACTICAL RECIPES OF THE ITALIAN CUISINE could be offered to the American public with hope of success. It is not a pretentious book, and the recipes have been made as clear and simple as possible. Some of the dishes described are not peculiar to Italy. All, however, are representative of the Cucina Casalinga of the peninsular Kingdom, which is not the least product of a lovable and simple people, among whom the art of living well and getting the most out of life at a moderate expense has been attained to a very high degree. </p> <br/> <br/> read more

For some baking is a scary process. This is mainly for three reasons. Firstly, they believe that when baking there can be no room ...for error in measuring the ingredients. Secondly, that you need lots of expensive equipment that you've never seen before and will most likely use once and never again. And thirdly that it is time consuming. And yes, it can be all of the above but it doesn't need to be. My aim in this book is to make your baking life as easy as possible. also only included recipes that use equipment that you might already have at home. So, for instance, I've included recipes for ice creams but these don't need an ice cream churner as if you're anything like me you will save up for this piece of equipment, use it every weekend for a month and then it will be left in the back of the cupboard collecting dust for the next 5 years! The one piece of equipment that I can't live without however is an electric mixer. It makes baking much easier and quicker, so if you are going to save up for one piece of kitchen equipment, this would be my best bet! However in the mean time a cheap electric hand whisk will do.   I also use 'cheat' ways to make sweets quick and easily, so for instance my lemon curd uses condensed milk.it's speedier, simpler and to be honest, I think it tastes better. I am certainly not adverse to buying readymade pastry. Why spend hours making the perfect puff when you can buy it in the supermarket instead! And just to show you how easy baking really is many of the recipes include the classic (Mother) recipe with adapted recipes alongside (Daughters). These show just how easy it is to take a recipe and make it new and exciting with a few extra ingredients. Use these as a starter and then why not try and create some of your own? Enclosed are an array of my 'home-style' cakes and desserts for you to try. So now you will have no excuse to not end your meals on a high, after all sweets are the last memory your guests have of your meal, the one they will remember as the taste lingers, so make it a amazing one. read more
